Buy My Book!

My almost 25 years of freelance and travel writing has led me on many amazing journeys.  A few years ago, my travels crossed paths with a very personal, inner journey which resulted in my new book, I Cried. And People Loved Me Anyway.

It’s the story of how, due to a series of events that happened within a very short period of time, my life completely fell apart and I was literally, ready to check out.  No longer able to maintain the subconscious façades I had built up since childhood, the master of coverups I had become shattered into bits, and all that was left was me.  And I had no idea who she really was.

Praise for I Cried:

Lysa Allman-Baldwin is a travel writer by profession.  “I Cried” chronicles a trip of a different type.  Her transparent, gutsy look at the journey toward transforming her long held limiting beliefs is full of twists and turns.  And it’s a heart-led road map for anyone who wants to explore the terrain of their own greatness.
Jeanne Looper Smith, Author of Retro Road Trip: Taking the Long Way Home

Lysa Allman-Baldwin offers a raw and relatable account of the ups and downs, highs and lows, ebbs and flows, yin and yang – of that living dynamic that so defines what it means to be human.”
Dr. Richard Loren Held, Spiritual Director, Unity in Lynwood

This beautifully-crafted masterpiece by Lysa Allman-Baldwin reflects the hope and joy that is possible when we embrace life’s challenges.  Lysa inspires and motivates anyone seeking to find purpose and meaning in their lives with words that reflect sensitivity and humor.  She reminds us that we are surrounded by wise sages who, as directional arrows, offer assistance, love, and support to us on our life journeys if we are willing (and courageous enough) to take the next steps on our own paths.  She writes, “In all honesty, I couldn’t say that the student was really ready, but I was certain that the right teacher, for this part of my spiritual journey, had indeed appeared.”  Allow Lysa to enlighten you in this courageous adventure.
Julie A. Connor, Ed.D., TED Speaker | Leadership & Teamwork| Communication & Conflict Resolution

Lysa Allman-Baldwin has taken the very worst of experiences, filleted open her soul, and allowed us to take a peek inside.  Her brutal honesty, willingness to show all the warts, and bravery in coming through this dark journey holds treasures for the rest of us.” 
~ Kate Guimbellot, Motivational Speaker and Trainer
